I Vote Nobody!!!!!!!!!

I Vote Nobody!!!!!!!!!

Did you know that there is a system in our constitution, as per the 1969 act, in section "49-O" that a person can go to the polling booth, confirm his identity, get his finger marked and convey the presiding
election officer that he doesn't want to vote anyone!

Yes guys such a option is available, but wonder why we were never informed of this...or we never tried to know about our rights. This is called "49-O".

Why should you go and say
"I VOTE NOBODY"... because, in a ward, if a candidate wins, say by 150 votes,
and that particular ward has received "49-O" votes more than 150, then that polling will be cancelled and will have to be re-polled. Not only that, but the candidature of the contestants will be removed and so they cannot contest the re-polling, since people had already expressed their decision on them. This would bring fear into parties and hence look for genuine & hope so good candidates for their parties for election. This would change the way, of our whole political system and even the way we think that what difference will our vote do... its surprising why the election commission has not revealed such a feature to the public as to educate the public about what their rights are ....

Please spread this news to as many as you know... Seems to be a wonderful weapon against corrupt parties in India ... show your power, expressing your desire not to vote for anybody, is even more powerful than voting... so don't miss your chance. So either vote, or vote not to vote
(vote 49-O) and pass this info on...

Use your voting right for a better

I'm quite surprised at the lack of comments on this. Its one of the most unexplored corner of our constitution. Its true that we can bring an election to complete stand still by such action. But sadly there are millions who know nothing about their basic fundamental rights granted to them by the Constitution of India. So chances are very bleak that this will actually take a pace.
Thanks for bringing it up.
